Can't remove hard drive. Held in place with weird scews.

So I'm having moving this 500gb harddrive from one computer to another. It's not removing the hard drive itself that's hard, but the metal casing its held in. It's bolted inside the computer and I have no idea how to remove it. If this can't be removed, then the hard drive can't.

I'll include some pictures of it to show.
